Bloody Jake

I created this drink (named after our infamous distillery mascot, Big Jake) for our 2nd Annual 630 Day party (6-30-14) and it was a big hit!  It’s basically a delicious version of the classic Bloody Mary but with Big Jake white whiskey in place of traditional vodka.  I think it freshens it up and adds another dimension to the drink.

Ingredients:

1.5oz Big Jake White Whiskey
3oz Homemade bloody mary mix*
4-5 dashes Celery Bitters

Directions:

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice & shake.  Rim separate tall glass with celery salt (I recommend wetting the glass rim beforehand with Big Jake to help the salt adhere) and add fresh ice.   Strain cocktail shaker into rimmed glass.

Garnish with olives, meats, pickles, cheeses, basically anything you can jam on a cocktail skewer!  Enjoy!

*bloody mary mix:
You can use your favorite mix or you can use a simple 50/50 mix of Zing Zang Bloody Mary Mix and 5 Peppar Bloody Mary Mix and add a couple shakes of crushed red pepper flakes to give it a little kick.
